Lyrics

You Are What You Is version

And here we are, at the Mudd Club, y'all
I hope you enjoy yourself
'Cause the show's about to begin...

Hey, they're really dancin'
They're on auto-destruct
On the floor, on the pipe
Bouncin' off-a the wall

Hey, the people here
Are really tearin' it up
On the side, in the back
By the front of the stage

They ain't really crazy
You can take it from me
I should know 'cause I go
Every time I'm in town

If you never tried it
Lemme straighten you out
It's the best kinda place
To unfasten yerself

MUDD CLUB!
All the way downtown
MUDD CLUB!
They ain't messin' around
MUDD CLUB!
Just turn to the left 'n look around
Because it's there somewhere

If you ain't found it, better hurry up
The folks down there's on auto-destruct
And so can you be too
The fact of the matter: it's made for you

Try it on a Saturday 'bout four o'clock in the mornin' or even a Monday at midnight when there's just a few of those Fabulous Poodles doin' the Peppermint Twist for real
In a black sack dress with nine inch heels
And then a guy with a blue mohawk comes in
In Serious Leather...

And all the rest of whom for which to whensonever of partially indeterminate bio-chemical degradation seek the path to the sudsy, yellow nozzle of their foaming, nocturnal, parametric, digital, whole-wheat, inter-faith, geo-thermal, terpsichorean ejectamenta
In Serious Leather...
In Serious Chains...

Then they work the wall
They work the pipe
They work the floor
'N they work the wall some more
In Serious Leather...
Serious Chains...
Serious Clothing...

From when they come downtown
From the ruins of Studio '54
To twist 'n frugg
In an arrogant gesture
To the best of what the 20th Century has to offer
Al Malkin's down there right now,
Looking for a virgin with nice breath
Why, maybe it's you?
And you don't even know it!

Hey, they're really dancin'
They're on auto-destruct
On the floor, on the pipe
Bouncin' off-a the wall

Hey, the people here
Are really tearin' it up
On the side, in the back,
By the front of the stage

They ain't really crazy
You can take it from me
I should know 'cause I go
Every time I'm in town

If you never tried it
Lemme straighten you out
It's the best kinda place
To unfasten yerself
While you...
